Well ingredientstodiefor.....certainly lives up to it's name I must say.
Their conditioner bases that I have tried so far - are AMAZING.....
I am going to write an longer review now on them.
The bases are all from ingredientstodiefor.com (under "unscented bases")
1. Organicals Deep Conditioning Creme
I really like this, I am going to be focusing on moisture, and more moisture for the next month or so to get my elasticity levels back to where they should be (I didn't OD on protein but my moisture levels are not where I feel they should be right now) and I will be using whats left of my samples of this after using a moisturizing shampoo.
This conditioner has really amazing ingredients, so that it is able to work as a leave in and a great deep conditioner. It gives really nice shine whether rinsed or left in, the SLIP is INSANEEEE....like seriously, I remember when I first got my gina curl thinking that Joico balm had crazy slip....this conditioner....goes on feeling 'light' and easy, and your hair will start to slip out of your hands, the moisture is from I can tell so far right on par with the AO white camelia conditioner I think. But I still need to use it more as a DC to really tell.
2. Touchably Soft Conditioning Gel
Is this a perfect gel? Nope!
However it is perfect for my styling routine - as it gives good moisture, and nice shine, and a good enough hold. This gel is going to be used as my primary gel as it makes my hair feel better than ANY of my other 'staple' gels so far - and it does what two of my gels only did together...which is provide me with MOISTURE, and Shine.
I only got those results when mixing my shea moisture curling souffle and my kinky curly custard. Which resulted in often weighed down, hair that would tangle and what not.
This gel feels like it lays my strands flat and seperates them, so it is a gel that is best with a HEAVY curling creme, or butter, or pomade used directly under it for clumping if your strands are fine like mine. So it works perfectly with my NB pomade, and when I experiment with butters I will have only two products needed for styling.
Also I just rinsed this gel out of my hair, it rinses SO CLEAN....and I swear, I am not just hype over this gel - whenever I rinse it out it looks like I just gave myself a very light protein treatment. This COULD be bad for those whose hair doesn't like alot of protein but my hair needs a light does of protein, maybe not daily but my strands are fine so the protein wont hurt when I moisturize as well.
I really really like this gel. =D
3. Creme Conditioner
Now I admit I just ordered one sample of this, just to have something to go along with my bulk order of the gel.
I didn't wash my hair yet, but like I said I just rinsed it really well - and my sitting with this in my hair under a plastic cap. *shrugs* I can't give a great review on it on not freshly washed hair as far as moisture goes.
But as far as slip....it has alot of slip just like the organicals DC - it smells like shea butter :P lol
I can tell regardless that it is very moisturizing, it's another one like the organicals DC that goes on 'clean' meaning when you work it in good it doesn't look white at all. I like that >.< lol
I'm gonna leave this in a for a bit since it's so hot today the coolness feels good....so far though I like it ^___^
Right now I am looking at butters, and going to try making my own 'sticky pomade' butter only I want to try hemp seed butter, and mango butter, and of course shea butter. =D I also need to buy more oils.
